Rays Sign Manny Ramirez, Johnny Damon

Pending physicals, the Rays have added Johnny Damon ($5.25 million) and Manny Ramirez ($2 million) to help offset a bit of what they lost when Carl Crawford broke north for Boston. My gut tells me that Manny kinda stunk last year, but the data says he had a .382 wOBA and a 138 OPS+. Damon actually did have a down year in 2010, but he had a .376 wOBA in 2009 and a .373 wOBA in 2008.

In other news, the Mets will introduce Chin-lung Hu, who has a career .227 wOBA, at a Citi Field press conference on Wednesday.
